Finn Balor Calls AEW Star “A Legend Of This Business”

Finn Balor crossfaces Edge

Finn Balor has reached across the wrestling divide and picked one AEW star that he calls “a legend of this business.”

Finn Balor has been making it his business to make the life of a WWE Hall of Famer very difficult in recent months as he and the rest of Judgment Day do battle with Edge. The Irish star recently defeated Edge in an I Quit match at Extreme Rules as The Rated R Superstar uttered those words in an attempt to stop Rhea Ripley from nailing his wife Beth Phoenix with a one-woman con-chair-to.

Despite Edge quitting and losing the match, Ripley delivered the vicious move regardless.

Speaking on the Superstar Crossover podcast, Finn Balor had a lot of praise for a former tag team partner of Edge and he called Chris Jericho a legend for his contributions over his thirty-plus years in the wrestling business:

“Chris Jericho is not only an AEW legend, not only a WWE legend, or a Japanese wrestling legend, he’s a legend of this business. He’s an incredible performer. He’s been able to adapt and change his character to suit multiple generations and I feel like he is a treasure of this industry.”

Chris Jericho is currently on a one-man quest to decimate the past of Ring of Honor as he is the current ROH World Champion. Jericho recently retained his title against Bryan Danielson on Dynamite after Daniel Garcia finally sided with The Jericho Appreciation Society, turning his back on The American Dragon.
